    do you know what that song is about? i think not. i could explain that phrase to you, if you wanted me to... it's just been given a bad name by little 13 year olds.

    ...and it was really necessary to start a new thread just for that?
    I guess it would have been too much work to post in one of the hundreds of existing Rage threads.

    don't try and out-sarcastic me. if you're too ignorant to even look into the meaning of a song before you decry it then you should just stop doing it, otherwise you end up looking like an idiot.

    Well, being that you obviously wrote the song, please refresh my memory as to it's meaning.

    And I don't know what is going on with the post order. I believe it has something to do with the clock.

    i don't claim to have written it... but it seems that it is written about the ku klux klan and also police brutality, and police murdering citizens. the lyrics "those who die, are justified, they're wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites" quite obviously state to me that police are allowed to kill people because of laws made to empower them, regardless of moral superiority, and that to justify killing people who are fighting the government they can get the police to do it - because they are, in most people eye's, righteous and above moral codes that prevent normal civillians from killing one another. i hope you can understand that bit. it's hard to express it in words.

    "fuck you, i won't do what you tell me" i think was originally meant to say, simply, if someone in authority abuses their power, don't let them get away with it, and don't do their bidding. in later years it has obviously become somewhat sarcastic, because i think the band are intelligent enough to realise that most of their fans can't comprehend certain causes and issues highlighted by their songs.

    indeed, ask the average RATM fan as to what "killing in the name" means, and they will say some vague cliches about "the system" and "fuck the government" and so on. this is, of course were everyone gets the idea that RATM fans know fuck all about politics and sociology. and most really have not got a clue.

    it does annoy me how idiots latch onto the guitar riffs and pounding drums, because RATM is so much more than all that. i go to a rock/alt bar often in my town, and every time RATM is played, i can just see a load of gurning idiots rocking out, and i realise that they know fuck all about the lyrics behind the music they are beating the shit out of each other to.

    sorry for making you read all of that.

    Look. I know what the song means, I am a big fan of theirs. My first comment in this thread was made to noisemachine as a joke. Like him, I don't think that the topic of the addition of the word "of" warrents an entire thread. I would imagine it's easy to get the title of the song confused, as Zach's first line is, "Killing in the name of..."

    It's ok. You and I can meet up before they play and have churros.

    I want to say I got one while leaving after listening to some of Tool, but I think I just walked by the churro stand. But I think I remember standing in line. I'm going to have to check with the lady friend to find out.

    Edit: Nevermind. I thought I had a theory about the out of order posts. It was proven incorrect.

    Read this post as if you are actually saying it, and you are Dwight from the Office. It made it a lot funnier. To me anyway.

    He IS saying "of," right? He's not saying "name-uh" or something. I'm not sure what your point is. Are you just clarifying the title of the damn song?

    This thread has broken me down to tears. Are rage fans going to be this gay over the weekend? I am starting to distance myself from the rage fan label, despite them being the main motivation to come over to coachella.

    Rage against proper grammar?

    I kind of like The Rage Against All Machines.
